“I was tired of my usual Mac N' Cheese, so this is what I came up with.The prep times include the frying of the bacon, and also includes the cooking time of the pasta.If you don't have the pasta that this recipe calls for, please use whatever you have on hand. And the amount of salt and pepper is strictly up to your own personal tastes.And if you are a cheese addict like me, :) you can add more cheese to the top before baking.Submitted to " ZAAR " on November 18th, 2009”
